SR 14
Can we ever say anyone is truly wrong? That they are absolutely wrong? On a recent trip to France, I was confused by a vigil we passed, and while trying to work out through my pigeon french whether the vigil was either Pro gay marriage and adoption or Anti, a youngish man approached us to answer our questions. However rather than try to influence or persuade us to his POV, he emphasised that his group had a right to express their views peacefully, without being discriminated against. Are there moral absolutes or is it all one giant grey area?

Sam Harris (Ted Talk) uses the example of a (Christian) father wanting to kill his gay son before he gets a boyfriend, preventing him from sinning, and condemning himself to hell. Equal rights has been on my noodle all the time recently – what level of social injustice is acceptable??? Why should we fight for equal rights where the rights don’t concern us? Because we are part of the oppression if we don’t. That’s it.
